I was not a good Lasik candidate

Can you use Tears Naturalle past expiration date?

I was cleaning out under my sink and found an unopened box of Tears Naturale that expired a year ago. Is it still usable? I know I used a few from another box that was expired and i had no problems. I bought a box of genteal just in case. Thanks....

Lately I've been putting my drops in, and if my eyes are still blurry ten minutes later I put some Systane...

Refrigerate Xiidra.

Does anyone refrigerate their Xiidra?

Chalazion Removal Surgery upcoming.

Hi All,

I have visited two Opthamologists now and they have both diagnosed it as a chalazion.

He has recommended surgery in one months time to remove the chalazion...
